We chose this hotel because it was close to the cruise port. Very short walk . The veiw was amazing of the opera house and the bridge . When the cruise ships dock they block the opera house from view. Rooms clean and modern. The restaurants were good. It is located in a senic and historic area.

We recently had a long weekend in Sydney to catch up with friends and family. We chose this hotel because (a) I'm a PriorityOne member and (b) the location is perfect for the various modes of public transport we required. We chose a Harbour View room, because it wasn't very much more per night however, for anyone wanting a true view of the harbour, I suggest you first check the schedule for the cruise ships. A good part of the day it would be better described as "Cruise Ship View Room". It didn't worry us too much, but it could annoy others.

The hotel itself is very run down and tired. It could really do with a couple of coats of paint, in the public areas and the rooms. The carpets too are old and coming away from the walls. You're still paying good money because of the location, but management really should spring a few bucks to give it a freshen up.

The room though was very comfortable, the beds and pillows particularly so. Because it's an older hotel there is plenty of wardrobe space, and the bathrooms are perfectly functional.

We didn't have a chance to eat in the hotel but breakfast smelt pretty good!

All the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient.

All in all, a great stay for our purposes.

Good hotel in the heart of the Rocks and just 300metres from the cruise wharf. Staff are extremely helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Rates are reasonable.There is a rooftop pool which provides great views. There is also a bar and restaurant on the first floor. Will stay there again.

Had a nice stay, perfect location for sightseeing. Room was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We made use of the happy hour in the bar and after, shame it shuts at 8pm with the coffee machine turned off at 7.30pm.
We found all the staff efficient and friendly and would stay here again.
Do not use the official taxi rank at Sydney airport to get to the hotel, we were charged $125, the return just $48 using a local cab booked through the hotel.

Room tip: Don’t use the taxi rank at Sydney airport
